About this product
- DescriptionThis volume examines the various linguistic and cultural problems which point towards the practical impossibility of conveying in one language exactly what was originally said in ather. The author provides an exhaustive discussion of Spanish translations from English texts, including n-standard registers. Equivalence across languages, that most elusive of terms in the whole theory of translation, is discussed in terms of linguistic equivalence, textual equivalence, cultural equivalence and pragmatic equivalence. Other aspects studied include how translation has been perceived over the centuries, the differences and the similarities between a writer and a translator, plus a detailed examination of translation as process, all of which bring the problems of literary translation into perspective.
